France Education Northwest, founded in 2008, is a 501c3 non-profit organization. The organization was started by leading members of Seattle’s French-American community, including many members of the French American Chamber of Commerce, to focus on education and promotion of French culture.
Our 5th Annual French Fest was a success! Thank you to all who came. To see photos from the event, please click here.

SEATTLE’S FRENCH FEST – An Annual Celebration Each Spring
FEN organizes the West Coast’s largest Francophone-themed festival each spring as part of the prestigious FESTÁL Cultural Event series. The March 20, 2016 event drew 6,000 visitors to the Seattle Center Armory. The event draws its inspiration from the worldwide “Day of Francophonie,” organized in over 100 countries to celebrate the diversity of Francophone cultures and traditions.
